The Park City School District has teamed up with the Park City Education Foundation to prepare their students for a life in a world surrounded by computers by teaching them coding fundamentals from a young age.
The Davis School District has received a $207,255 STEM Action Center grant to teach coding to all elementary school students and increase computer science opportunities for junior high students. Thirty-three elementary schools in the district have volunteered to participate in this initiative.
Last school year, the Park City School District began exploring the mostly uncharted waters of teaching coding classes to elementary students. More than a year and a half later, the district is now reaping the rewards of implementing a program almost no other school system in the country offers.
